How to turn off Lightroom Color Management?


I am NOT writing about how Lightroom changes the appearance of RAW images a bit according to the import profiles. I know about that.
I guess I must have ticked some odd box wrongly. Whenever I import JPGs or TIFFs, LIGHTROOM 4 shows me those images pretty much like shot before importing.
After I have imported them, the images look way too dark and contrasty. However, If I then export them again without any changes, they look just fine like the images I had imported. (And, yes, I did a test. If I correct the images to make them look fine inside LR4, they look way to bright once exported)
So, it appears to me, that Lightroom doesn't change the image when I import it, but somehow displays the image in some odd way. Could this be some kind of color management that I can switch off?

Thank you for reading. Does anyone have the same issues or knows how to solve this situation?
